Just an update

He has had a bad infection in his left knee and left wrist for the last 4 days. Yesterday he started having an infection in his right knee and said his back hurt so bad he could hardly sit.

Today, he sat in the recliner with a heating pad on his left knee.

I asked him tonight if he thought maybe it was time to go see a doctor and he said, "maybe in a few days or so" - which translated simply means that he's going to wait at least a week and see if the pain is any better.

I've started back doing yardwork - 2 or 3 hours every morning. Someone has to do it. And he simply can't.

Welcome back! you didn't say -- I hope you enjoyed your trip. you didn't say but it can be frustrating to come home feeling refreshed just to find out that things aren't really better at home. Oh, he may not have had any crises while you were gone (he wouldn't, you weren't there to take care of him!) but now that you are back, he needs your help.

Sisters, on the other hand, are wonderful! they tell us stuff in a way no one else can.

Good luck dealing with his pain in his knees!
